Schenn scores twice, Emery stops 30 shots to lead Flyers in 2-1 win over Penguins

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Brayden Schenn scored two goals and backup goalie Ray Emery stopped 30 shots to lead the Philadelphia Flyers in a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night for their third straight victory.

Schenn, who had a goal and an assist during Philadelphia's 5-0 win against Ottawa the previous night, opened the scoring late in the first period and got the tiebreaker late in the second. Emery got the start one night after Steve Mason shut out the Senators.

Penguins' captain Sidney Crosby scored his ninth goal of the season, and first in eight games for the Penguins. Marc-Andre Fleury made 19 saves for Pittsburgh, which has lost three straight for the second time this season.

Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
